How can I prepare for an appointment to diagnose gynecologic cancer?

You can prepare for an appointment to diagnose gynecologic cancer by making a list of all your symptoms, even those that may not seem to be relevant. Your doctor will need to know all about your medical history, including your history of STDs and sexual partners. Your doctor will need to know what medications, vitamins, and supplements that you are currently taking. Tell your doctor about any current changes in your life, especially stressful ones.

Make a list of any questions you might want to ask your doctor. Take a friend or relative to the appointment with you, to offer moral support and help you remember what the doctor said.
